I apologize for the whiny posts that have happened recently .. Low energy, lack of sleep, jet lagged and caring for a 13 week old has tested me a bit lately. My nerves are/were unraveling

Follow up - MT had a few fussy/cranky days. I am still not certain it is teething but it may very well be. It could be trip/jet lag also. Or a combination of many things. We are still trying to figure out his feeding requirements. I swear he changes things just to remind me who is in charge .... Ok on to our trip

We had such a wonderful time. I was nervous for nothing. E's Dad and Wife were very gracious to us. It was not awkward for long. E's dad smiled from the time he saw E and MT until he dropped us off at the airport to leave. I know he really loves E so much. So much more than I think I gave him credit for. They took us up their cabin in the woods for a few days. It is on the Michigan/Wisconsin border. That is as far north as I have ever been now. It was very cold. Well, I say very, It was in the fifties and I was freezing. I do believe they really love being grandparents. It was shocking and warm at the same time. I was really unsure how all of this would play out.

Having a baby on vacation is EXHAUSTING ..... Well having a baby to care for is exhausting .. Now add caring for a baby w/o your regular household baby items. It's quite challenging and you learn to be extremely creative.

I was so worried about our plane ride.. We received many of "the look".. You know the "OMG this baby could scream the entire plane ride .. NO lord PLEASE let them NOT SIT by ME" Look. .... Yes, That look. But MT slept most of the way there and back. I would try to feed him at take off/landing if he was awake - but he didn't seem bothered by the whole experience. Thankfully.

We crossed a time zone and that has also seemed to mess with my lil tot. He seems to be on central time right now ... everything seems to just be off. I am hoping that in a week we are back sailing along again.

I know you want pictures, Here ya go
